Time for a bit of real talk.I figure this is as good a time as any to let some of you know a tiny bit about me.Time for a bit of real talk.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I believe in honesty. I believe in respect. I sincerely think that these two things are probably the most important to partake in and ponder over. Honesty and respect are what build good relationships, even better friendships, and more miscellaneous connections that are pretty mutually beneficial. To me, when someone shows thorough lack of respect or honesty when faced with it, things get a bit silly. Honesty and respect are rooted in communication, and without communication, we fall.
I like to think of myself as an honest and relatively respectful person. We all have flaws, and I'm not an exception to that.
I keep my friends close. I keep them very close, closer than my family. When one of my friends is having problems, I stop what I'm doing, I listen, and I offer my honest, yet respectful, opinions. I don't criticise them harshly, and I don't let outside people sway my judgment or feelings

Overcoming Creative BlockI think every artist has creative block from time to time. A friend of mine did recently, so I typed up my own remedy for it. And I liked how it turned out, so I think I'll post it here too. This is my advice on how to get past creative block - whether it's art block, writer's block, etc.Overcoming Creative Block2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's what you do -
Go find a book or comic book you haven't read. Read it. If you haven't read the Bone series by Jeff Smith, or the Bakuman series (it's a manga), then go find those, and read them. Read the Inkheart trilogy. Read Elantris by Brandon Sanderson. Read Endymion Spring. Find a story and lose yourself in it.
Watch animated videos and movies you haven't seen. Here's a playlist of animated videos I liked. Pick a few and watch them, and really think about the artwork being created there. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?listLkDDYT9uliZfNKCIelqyVcQO_p_e0O7Jn&feature=mh_lolz

Placing as 5th place, winning an honorable mention, would be hann-nya! Congratulations!
I absolutely love, especially, the sweater that you designed. I think that it is so absolutely adorable, and I seriously have a thing for sweaters. I had my cousin help me judge, and she really liked yours, which was tied with 2 others.
Placing 4th place, winning an honorable mention, would be ennueye! Congratulations!
Again, i really loved how you drew the sweater. I think that's what wooed me in the first place. Your piece was tied with 3 others but yours, out of the 4, had the most original design. The colors fitted really nicely, and I really love how you worked out your markers in general. Congrats! ^_^
Placing 3rd place, winning an honorable mention, would be BlazingBacon! Congratulations!
I gotta say, I was really shocked seeing

On the 22nd of May until 8th of June I'll be in Japan for the first time in my life. Needless to say, I am absolutely stoked and PRETTY DANG NERVOUS considering it will be my first time traveling alone too. Hoo boy. I'll be there attending my brother's wedding in Hiroshima, then spending most of my trip in Kyoto. In my last few days, I'll have a look around Tokyo. Haven't made solid plans yet, but that's the gist of it!! YEAH I CAN'T WAIT TO GET MYSELF LOST.

Shingeki no Mulan (AMV Stuffs)So I just wanted to let you guys know that I also make AMVs! ... Granted, these projects tend to be so time consuming that I only manage to churn out once every year or so. XD;; Sad, huh? That said, earlier in the year, and during the earlier stages of the SnK craze, I decided to make a Shingeki no Kyojin amv of sorts. Using a Disney song. The results were interesting to say the least. XD I just remembered it while sifting through my youtube uploads, so I decided to show it off here.Shingeki no Mulan (AMV Stuffs)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hope you guys enjoy. XD
If I find time after the holidays, I might get back into amv-making for a bit and create something for you guys as a way of saying thanks for sticking around and following my writing stuffs. I do have to gift you guys somehow for the 500 watches after all. XD Maybe a Jean-centric amv? Hmmm.
Something to think about. ;D Happy Holidays you lovely fireflies.
i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)so here are my superspoilery opinions of these movies ---i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
just opinions, there is no more validity to them than to anyone elses
so, let's start with frozen....
i made a huge mistake before frozen...huuugeeee mistake.
i listened to that let it go song....
now, what follows is an example how one small thing can snowball into a huge friggin thing... see what i did there ? snowball?
so i listened to that song.. and ..um.. it sounded glorious... but it also sounded like an anthem to coming out of the closet.... i mean, i deal with subtext a lot. and even i have seen people see more in my own writing than i intended. rarely but it happened. so subtext is hardly a new thing ...
we are talking about a song that says
don't let them know don't let them see , be the good girl you always have to be

and this is just some of it... there is this vibe of a sexual liberation in the s
What doesn't kill you makes you strongerI just went back and read some of the horrible comments I've received from people in the past.What doesn't kill you makes you stronger4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I remember how hurtful it was and how much I wanted to just dissapear from it all. I felt helpless and hopeless.
The internet can be a terrible place.
When people aren't accountable for what they say they feel a certain sense of power. The ability to judge others without being judged ourselves is a position of immense dominance. It's exhilarating to exercise that dominance over another person.
But now, looking back, I realize that it doesn't bother me anymore. I don't even bother hiding, deleting or responding to those comments because it just doesn't bug me. I feel a resounding "eh",
I keep those comments up so that people can see the kind of behaviour that people reduce themselves to when they're behind a computer screen. Every "this is shit" or ""he" is just a dyke and a "she"" has meaning to me now. It means that I've overcome something that I never would have thought possible. I'm not hu
